What distinguishes a simple metal or plastic box from a functional electronic enclosure? Most often, it’s the modifications necessary to allow access to the interior, stabilize and protect its contents, and present the appropriate appearance. Enclosures typically need a minimum of one cutout for a power cable and often many other modifications, which can include holes, cutouts, tappings, gaskets, pre-assembly, and finishing.
Education is one of those areas that is on everyone’s “to do” list. We all know we need to keep up in today’s fast moving marketplace yet finding the time to attend classes, even virtually, is a huge challenge. Even more difficult is finding options that are quick, meaningful, and easy to attend. Newark Element 14 is hosting a series of Webinar 101 sessions that are run by their top vendors and are meet those needs and if the timing does not work for you, there is an opportunity to listen to the session later although the live question and answer period will not be available.
Of great interest to me is that I will be hosting a session on Electronic Enclosures that is titled “How to avoid the top 10 pitfalls in designing and specifying an enclosure”. The session will be held this Tuesday, April 23 at noon central time. You can sign up below:
While a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, we have all learned that in today’s world, video is even more “valuable.” From celebrity reputations that are made or damaged to either positive or negative police actions, the prevalence of video in our culture has changed the way we view and react to events. In a business environment, video has become a simple but effective way to evaluate products or to learn about their benefits and features. Bud Industries has a wide library of videos that provides a close look at many of their products and services in a way that a photograph cannot. From a clear explanation of Bud’s custom electronic enclosure modification capabilities to detailed product reviews, the Bud video collection is a great tool for any engineer. Our newest video highlights the incredible features of the SRP professional server rack series that has a low price, yet includes many accessories that other provide only at an extra cost. From included fan boxes for heat management to cable management brackets, this is a turn key unit that will provide a data center with the best in design and protection. Check out Bud’s entire video library at www.youtube.com/budind or find the videos throughout our product pages.
This week, the famous Consumer Electronics Show is being held in Las Vegas. It is a media savvy vehicle for bringing new products and technology to market. As the various vendors and industry pundits’ work to impress us with what is new, I find myself thinking about some of the basics. Over time, some of the most exciting advances have to do with packaging and how the product appears to the increasingly sophisticated consumer. Take a look at ipods or flat screen televisions, and you see that how the components are packaged is often more important than the components themselves. This brings us to the importance of the enclosure.
An increasing segment of Bud Industry’s market is customizing products to meet the unique design and marketing features of the customer. In fact, one of the most significant changes in the selling of enclosures is the inclusion of marketing leadership in the design phase. This is a great approach because we have seen that when marketing is involved near the end of the project, expensive changes can occur. These can result from a desire to make the product more ergonomic to more in line with the company branding efforts. For example, we did a prototype for a customer in one of our smaller plastic enclosures which perfectly suited their board mounting, display and connectivity needs. On a later iteration, they decided that they needed the unit made out of a special color to match their company colors and to help distinguish them in the market. Although the change itself was not complex, the alteration caused production delays as well as inconvenience for all involved.
